Today I’m sharing four free sight word books that teach the sight word “I.”
(This post contains affiliate links.)
Now that my preschooler shows all the reading readiness signs, I’ve been teaching him to read. We keep it very light – just a few times a week for no more than 10-15 minutes at each session.
Each week, I teach a new sight word. Sometimes we need to do a lot of activities to get that new word into his head. “I” was pretty simple, for obvious reasons. 😉
Instead of doing activities to teach the new sight word (since he already knew it), we did this simple concepts of print activity from Reading the Alphabet. I cut apart the words, told him the sentence, and watched him build it.
Even though he can’t read most of those words in isolation, he could figure them out based on their beginning sounds.
Next, we moved right into our sight word books. Each book in our simple sight word book series has the name of the sight word on the cover.
This book is about forest animals.
This one is about firefighters.
This one is about a lunch.
And this one is about pets.
As you can see, the books are super simple. They’ll get tougher as we get into later books, but the point here is to build confidence with a few simple words.
We look forward to sharing more of these books over the next year! (Don’t wait to wait? Grab the entire set in our shop.)
